Does anyone know what this is?

Appears daily at my backyard feeder. eating black oil sunflower seeds as most of my feathered friends do. I live in Northwest GA and am new to true birding. I have a North American Field Guide but can't seem to place this one..

the beak makes me think of a Grosbeak.. colored similar to a sparrow.. I just don't have a clue.
